A charity which helps support adults with learning disabilities has received a surprise £1,000.

Jones Harris Chartered Accountants worked with String Computer Systems to develop a series of workshops to help clients get to grips with a book-keeping package.

The entry fee for the sessions was collected and donated to the Fleetwood and Wyre Mencap shop, on St John Avenue, Fleetwood, to help provide leisure facilities for their members.

Linda Lofthouse, chairman of Trustees at Fleetwood and Wyre Mencap, collected the money with three members who will benefit from the donation.

She said: “We had no idea these events had been held and the money had been collected so it was such a nice surprise.

“We’ll use the money wisely to provide leisure facilities for all of our members to enjoy.”
